Long Horse is a heroic Internet-Urban Legend creature created by Trevor Henderson which originates from 2018.
Long Horse appears to be a creature that has a horse skull without a jaw for a head. Its pale neck made of pliable skin appears to be infinitely long with some pieces of a black mane hanging all over the neck. It also creates cracking noises when bending its neck, which bends like a finger, allowing it to create as few or as many joints as possible. Its neck doesn’t have to connect in linear space due to its properties. Interestingly, Long Horse is said to smell like cinnamon.
Long Horse was established as a legend when a picture of the creature started spreading over the Internet since 24th August 2018, when a user named Trevor Henderson published a picture showing Long Horse, with the description that the user had a dream of the horse beforehand.
Future on, another picture has been released of the creature by Trevor, where it appears to be in the suburbs, and he named the creature Long Horse. An ancient cave painting has been found of the Long Horse around three humans, and in the description it is revealed that Long Horse has been around since ancient times.
Interestingly enough, the ancient drawing depicts that Long Horse is the humans' protectors. He is pure harmless, and his goal is to warn humans of upcoming dangers. If a human hears a neck crack or sees a long skeleton neck creature, the message is that a natural disaster will occur, not because of Long Horse, but because of what will happen further on.
One more picture of Long Horse has been posted. It simply says, “a new sighting. he’s on the move”, meaning Long Horse is most likely going somewhere to warn the people in that area of an upcoming disaster.
Not much is known about Long Horse’s personality. As mentioned before, he cares about humans, serving as their protector and warning them of disasters. He is also mentioned several times to have a curious nature, but exactly how he displays his curiosity is currently unknown. According to small quips made by Trevor, Long Horse enjoys, but most likely does not require, offerings such as apples and affection.
Long Horse is able to foretell disasters and teleport, and he uses these abilities to warn others. He is able to break physics due to the infinite nature of his neck, and he can defy gravity and seemingly levitate. He can contort his body and adjust the number of joints in his neck, and the neck doesn’t have to connect in linear space. Long Horse can enter people’s dreams, and Trevor once mentioned that if someone were to stare at Long Horse’s neck for a while without looking away, it would eventually crumble into dust, which would most likely not affect Long Horse due to his nature. He can also give off the smell of cinnamon.
- The Long Horse was created by Trevor Henderson, who is known for making various bizarre creatures over the Internet, and also created Siren Head, Cartoon Cat, the Country Road Creature, and the Bridge Worms.
- On Twitter, Trevor posted an artwork of Long Horse, calling him the “patron saint of forewarning, of disaster averted, of curiosity, for better or worse”.
- Trevor confirmed that Long Horse is the only one of his species when he responded to an ask on Tumblr about his creations possibly being part of a species; he name drops Siren Head, Long Horse, Bonesworth and Mr. Mascot as a few of the many monsters that are the only one of their kind.
- Long Horse is also known as the “Dream Horse”, as several posts mention he can appear in dreams as well as real life.
- Trevor once mentioned on Twitter that if someone were to offer Long Horse an apple, the apple would wither and blacken, a sign that Long Horse had accepted the offering.
- Trevor has stated several facts about Long Horse’s physiology on his Tumblr, which include:
- Supposedly being able to move through “layers of reality” like a needle moves through thread (kinda)
- Possibly having a body in a pocket dimension somewhere, forever existing and not existing.
- If someone somehow never looks away from Long Horse, the observed portions of the neck will wither up and crumble into dust.
- Trevor once stated that “he doesn’t have a body that we could see, it’s always just more neck, even when it breaks the laws of physics, like an optical illusion. if he has a true body it’s in a form we can’t really picture and not in our dimension. maybe at the culminating point in the center of where many dimensional layers meet, like a nucleus with the neck and head projecting out“.
- Trevor has confirmed that Long Horse and Siren Head are aware of one another.
